Each hero's level is displayed on the bottom-left of their portrait. The coloured bar shows their current experience.

A level is a number assigned to each hero class. Each player's classes start at level 1, and levels can be gained for each by accumulating experience. Experience is gained by playing games, especially winning games, in that class. The current level cap is 60.

While displayed upon each individual hero, level is shared between all heroes of a given class, and can be increased by playing any hero of that class. For example, Medivh will immediately show the same level as the player's other mage heroes, such as Jaina Proudmoore, and gaining experience or levels as Medivh will also progress the other mage heroes.

A hero's level has no direct effect on gameplay, does not determine matchmaking, and is not visible to opponents. However, raising a hero of a given class to a new level will often reward players with new Core cards. Once a class has reached level 10, no further impact on gameplay will result from increasing its level. There is one exception: Tavern Brawl mode, which is not unlocked until the player reaches level 20 with at least one class.

Each hero's current level and experience can be checked in the Quest Log, or by viewing a deck using that hero on any of the deck selection screens, and is also displayed at the end of each match.

After completing the Ashes of Outland Prologue or defeating Demon Hunter in the Practice mode, the class will be unlocked at level 20 immediately.


As a hero reaches various levels, they are awarded new cards. The card awarded depends on the hero and level reached. All cards awarded by gaining levels cannot be crafted or disenchanted.

Levels up to 10 award new Core class cards. Neutral Core cards are unlocked by a shared pool of wins between all classes, and all of them can be unlocked by reaching a combined level of 60 across any classes of one's choosing.

The hero level display in the Quest Log

  • Previous developers have stated that increasing the level cap is "certainly possible", but that they would have to work out "compelling rewards" for reaching levels above 60.[1]
  • When you unlock the Demon Hunter, you start at level 20 for the class.


  • The game's current level cap of level 60 matches the original level cap for World of Warcraft, as well as the squished level cap for the Shadowlands addon.
